RB - CHI
Week 13 Outlook
Bears RB Khalil Herbert rushed 23 times for 72 yards and caught two passes for negative four yards in the Bears' 33-22 loss to the 49ers on Sunday.
Herbert continued to show flashes of excellent yet again on Sunday. The rookie runner rushed 23 times to the tune of 72 yards. With David Montgomery expected back in the next few weeks, Herbert may take a back seat as the RB. For now, he continues to slot in as a low-end RB2 in fantasy formats. The Bears take on the Steelers next weekend which isn't a great matchup for the rookie.
Bears RB Khalil Herbert rushed 18 times for 100 yards and caught five passes for 33 yards in the Bears' 38-3 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.
Herbert was electric in his second game as the starter racking up 133 yards on 23 touches. Even with veteran Damien Williams back, the rookie started and played more. It's safe to say that the Bears found their guy. With Montgomery likely back soon, Herbert may not be worth rostering outside of dynasty leagues.
Khalil Herbert rushed 19 times for 97 yards and a touchdown while adding two receptions for 15 yards in the Bears' 24-14 loss to the Packers on Sunday.
Herbert had consistent success running the ball against a Packers defense that's struggled against the run this season, and if the Bears didn't trail for much of this contest, he may have had even better production. Even if Damien Williams (illness) returns next week, Herbert should continue to see significant work in a shared backfield until David Montgomery (knee) returns, so he should retain enough value to be a consideration for fantasy lineups for the next few weeks.
The Chicago Bears have selected RB Khalil Herbert with the No. 217 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Herbert totaled 1,182 rushing yards for Virginia Tech as a transfer in 2020, averaging 162.8 all-purpose yards per game in nine games last season. He is a one-cut, north and south runner who is capable of finding the lane and accelerating into the second level of the defense. Herbert is a great decision-maker and establishes good ball security, which will allow the Bears to overcome their fumble problems, particularly near the goal line. This selection also aims to build up depth behind David Montgomery, who finished strong last season to remain locked as the Bears' RB1 heading into 2021.
